Hi, it sounds like your printer experiencing a hardware failure thats why the error light still on. The sensor that detects paper jam or any obstruction might be defective. Aside from that your printer may also experienced a motion carriage error. You can to power cycle the printer & check ink cartridge. if the error still present your printer might be needed to be send to the nearest Epson Service center.
